I hope you’re starting to “get it” when it comes to Fibonacci. This place is something really special, and you certainly won’t find anything quite like it here in Cincinnati, maybe even anywhere that you ever stop to grab a beer. This absolute treasure of a brewery is getting ready to celebrate their fourth birthday, and there’s a lot that I want you to know about that – so hang in there with me for a minute.

The Party

Like I said, This is Fibonacci’s fourth birthday, which… while it’s the first year that their birthday isn’t a Fibonacci number it might actually be the biggest birthday that they’ve had so far.

When you walk up to their taproom, and the expansion that in a lot of ways is being unveiled to the world during this event, you can finally start seeing this vision for what it is. Fib is not just a little nano brewery tucked in a community that for what a lot of people told me before they opened, shouldn’t have it’s own brewery. Fibonacci is a big picture idea of what could happen when an urban farm meets a taproom in a city that is desperate for ideas like this to come to life.

Before I dig into some of the bigger picture stuff you should know specifics about the party, I guess. July 27th from noon – midnight. Go ahead, mark your calendar. I’ll wait before I continue.

They’ll have all the normal stuff that you’ve come to expect. Food from Goodies. Music from Xander Wells and one of my favorite bands, Hunting Agnes. And Beer? Yeah… there’s gonna be some beer releases:

  • Lower Gravity – Sour Ale with local blueberries and star fruit
  • Horapha – Cream Ale with Thai Basil, Honey and Lemon
  • Compton – Cream Ale with strawberries
  • Dummy – Belgian Tripel with peaches and cinnamon
  • Secale – Double Dry Hopped Red Rye
  • Tollhouse – Imperial Stout
  • Tollhouse – Imperial Stout with Peanut Butter and Vanilla
  • Tollhouse – Imperial Stout with Peanut Butter and Black Raspberries
  • Origin of Species – English Mild with Pistachio Pu-era tea
  • Amozacca – NE IPA with Amarillo, Mosaic and Azacca hops

A lot of these beers are made with local ingredients, organic ingredients…

Fib Farm Ingredients.

This is why I think this birthday is such a big one for Fibonacci – the farm.

Growing Up

It’s like a spotlight has finally been shown on the personality of Fibonacci this year. Their expansion is visible. Their goats will be at the party. The chicken house was delivered last week. They have grown up and started to really show who they are in such a crowded world that is craft beer.

I talked a little while back about some of the stuff they’re doing this summer, including a farmers market that makes more sense than 99% of the events that our local breweries have planned in the last decade. This is who they are. It’s a hub for a community. It’s a gathering place for people who create things, who grow things, build things… people who love to support that side of craft. It’s a beautiful little slice of Fibonacci.

When you show up at their fourth birthday, you aren’t just showing up for some killer music (keep your ears open for Spaceman from Hunting Agnes… or maybe they’ll even play the ‘Drinking With The Gnome‘ Theme Song) You’re not showing up to Mt. Healthy to snag a couple fun beer releases – even though that Compton Cream Ale has my mouth watering just thinking about it. You’re showing up to see what Fibonacci has been trying to tell us for a long time. You’re showing up to see who they are and what makes them special.

Go. Drink. Eat… Enjoy yourself. Celebrate doing things a little different than people tell you to do them. Celebrate what it means to really “Be Gnarly”. Fibonacci is well underway to defining that as they forge a path that is most definitely their own, in an industry with a lot of well paved paths that a brewery is “supposed” to take.

I’ll see you guys there. Happy Birthday Fib.
